Its been quite some time since I blogged but I have a good excuse as I have been crafting, crafting and crafting, lol. Now, I just need to find some time to blog and share my cards.
Today I made this wedding card for my cousin. I love the pattern of these papers and it really is similar to some curtains I have - so it fits the bill for the DCM Challenge this week. I set myself the challenge to try and create a card that had flow and softness in the layout, however I still need to work a bit harder to achieve this. Still I am quite pleased with the way it turned out especially with the flocking technique which I used for the first time.
K & Co Classic K
Doodlebug Velvet Flock
U Mount flourishes
Papermania Sparkling Trims - Lime
Papermill cream card
Ink it Up - Pink, Chocolate brown, white
- Cut a piece of wine patterned paper to cover 2/3 of the card. Cut another from lighter coloured paper to cover 1/3 of the card. Trim a piece of cream cardstock using edging scissors. Distress the paper with pink and brown ink.
- Cut a heart shape, stamp the flourish and go over it with sakura quick glue, then use flock to cover it. Roll a pen to press the flock. Ink the edges with pink and then chocolate ink.
- Prick around the edge of the heart.
- Punch two small holes, pass the ribbon from these holes and tie as shown.
- Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment, cut around the card and stick using foam pads.
- Embellish with the sparkle trim and assemble everything as shown.
